The school is being relocated from its current site in Paton Close to near Gillender Street at Bow Lock.

Pupils were joined by school governors, teaching staff, Bow School’s head teacher, Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman, and council officers at the ceremony.

Following a tour of the new site taking in the progress made on the main building, dining pavilion and first floor atria, concrete was poured on the landing of the external staircase, to mark the completion of one of the final elements of the construction works.

Mayor Lutfur Rahman said: “As a former pupil of Bow School, – a secondary that is now in the country’s top 20 per cent of schools for adding value to students’ achievements at GCSE – today is an auspicious occasion and a key milestone for this school.”

The project will expand Bow School to provide an additional four forms per year — with girls being admitted for the first time from September 2014.
